Public Policy Polling recently asked several hundred Americans whether they have favorable or unfavorable opinions of various musicians and styles of music, from classical and jazz to Chris Brown and Justin Bieber.

As you might expect, Bieber took a serious beating with only 20% of voters having a favorable opinion of the young singer and 54% unfavorable. Other unlikeables included Skrillex (11% favorable, 35% unfavorable), Chris Brown (13%, 57%), Lady Gaga (29%, 50%), and Jay-Z (25%, 44%).

In fact, the only artists who came out looking good were Adele (54%, 18%), Beyonce (51%, 30%), and Taylor Swift (53%, 27%). Even '80s crooner Morrissey got a bad wrap.

The survey also included some weird questions, like: "In your opinion, how should Justin Timberlake spend most of his time: acting, making music, getting back together with 'N Sync, or playing golf?" Or: "Have you ever been to the club, or not?"

Let us know who you think the most unlikeable artist is, and feel free to elaborate on your response in the comments section. We can't wait to see who you come up with.

    Chris Brown beat up his girlfriend (not that I'm a Rihanna fan). He automatically out-douches anyone else on this list.

    Chris Brown
    Chris is just a tool. He thinks he's so cool and is not humble or apologetic for his actions at all plus his music sucks. Justin is a tool now too, spoiled little brat. Taylor has been acting very immature lately, like when she made an insensitive joke towards ex Harry Styles at the VMAs but then couldn't take a joke from Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, Lil Wayne is fine I guess, Lady Gaga is just old news and tries to hard, Skrillex hasn't done anything, and Rihanna is so damn fake, she acts like she's so bad and she's so dumb for dating Chris again.

    There quite a few up there that I don't like but the worst of them has to be spoiled little rich kid, Justin, Chris Brown, Taylor Swift and Lil Wayne. Justin REALLY needs to grow up and stop acting like a spoiled little twit and Chris Brown is a lady beater. Nothing good about that and Taylor Swift just can't sing at all. And she acts pretty spoiled right now too.

    Wow, beating out the gf-beater Chris Brown really says something about Bieber!

    I would have voted for Kanye West over Bieber, BTW.

    I really wanted to say Taylor Swift, but Chris Brown is just deplorable.

    He has the worst talent of out of all of them, that includes all his Young Money pals.

    Chris Brown
    I totally hate Chris Brown. I always thought he was a douche bag even before slugging poor Rihanna. I'm not a big fan of Rihanna, but she does have a nice voice and personality. I don't know why she even dated Chris Brown.

    Chris Brown definatly lost most of his fans, but I think the least likeable right now is JB, that kid is way over his head

    I voted for Beiber because it's obvious he has no respect for the fanbase that finance his fine lifestyle it denotes a lack of conscience, indeed it's been replaced with an ego as big as a house ~ If he cannot appreciate the value of the record buying public, he deserves to lose them - lose it all.
  • Mark_Allen 2013/05/22 07:51:14
    Chris Brown
    Bieber and the others are harmless sideshows compared to the violent, misogynist Chris Brown.
  • MartiniJean 2013/05/22 02:54:09
    Chris Brown
    As you can assume - it's mostly because he's a piece of garbage that punched a woman multiple times.
  • Isabella 2013/05/22 02:48:13
    Taylor Swift
    This is such a great list I have literally no idea who to choose. I hate each of them with a fiery passion for what they've done to my generation's music. Lady Gaga the less, but I'm gonna go with Swift because she encourages such weak images for women. She is the embodiment of "playing the victim" and on a musical note, she can't sing and her songs are cliche and mediocre at best. She's not worth the fuss for being such an average person.
  • Kuchi_Main 2013/05/22 01:21:05
    Justin Bieber
    The only reason he's the least likable out of all of these is because his character is very bad. I mean, everyone else on this list has other people write their songs, but Justin is just a bad person

  • DoubleChocoholic 2013/05/22 00:14:43
    Really I hate them all. Chris Brown beat up his girlfriend, Bieber still hasn't hit puberty at 19, Lady Gaga I almost respect for not giving a crap what they think but not a fan, Taylor Swift writes songs about the same thing over and over again, Skrillex is just wub-wub-wub and Rihanna needs to go back to her old stuff.
  • arnab.basu.18 2013/05/22 00:12:03
    All of the above, including Nicki Minaj and a plethora of modern rappers. Heck, this retired singer performed a single with better lyrics than any "artist" on the list.
